complex. >> he continued for a cause he knew was right. that's the lesson of lincoln, of dr. king and president obama. dr. reverend walker who chaired dr. king used to always remind me of his favorite kwoet from dr. king. he would say you measure not a man by the way he is stands in time of convenience, but where he stands in the times of controversy. the president, now dr. king and even lincoln before. they stood in the most controversial and perilous times. people that show leadership and stability and vision and commitment when it's the most difficult of times. any one can shine when everything is going well. but it's when it is the darkest that we can see those that really bear the brightest lights. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

. we must continue to fight. it took the dr. kings, the rosa parks, to make it possible for us to have an open america. it took those that fought for gender equality and gay and l z lesbian rights and labor rights to open up america, it takes those of us now to continue to fight. we have gone through a turbulent time, we've gone through turbulent history. but we've not arrived yet. when you fly, you don't get off the plane when you get out of turbulence, you get off once you've reached your destination. until we get to the destination of this country, this nation living up to its creed, it will not be time for us to dislodge those that do what is necessary to keep this nation moving forward, both in office and those that are out of office and in the streets of this nation raising issues. that's what king day is about. that's what the victory of b arksz barack obama is a victory of. thanks for watching. a special live edition of "hardball" starts right now. >>> well, welcome, good evening, i'm chris matthews live from the news room in washington wra i've been all day. it's been a day o

second oath of office. we honor dr. martin luther king day, as well. president obama is a reflection of the accomplishments of this civil rights leader. there he is. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. >>> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal, is the star that guides us still. just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all of those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher safe that we cannot walk along. to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on earth. >>> welcome back to "hardball," today, the president made subtle but clear note of the remarkable con influence that put the second inauguration of our first african american on the same day as the federal holiday marking dr. martin luther king's birthday. joining me now, the msnbc contributor, eugene robinson and author of barack obama, the story. let's start with you, david. and there's your
